§ 2 Responses to Books from A to Z

  • I LOVE this book, its my new favorite, i don’t know how many times i’ve already re-read it! The characters and the plot were written really well. It was exciting, intense, full of action and it even had some romance mixed in there too

  • You have an interesting list of books there. Although naturally I tend to disagree on some of your opinions (the solitude of prime numbers e.g.). Additionally – as I am always curious what others are reading – I would love to read more. I am not sure if sometimes a book review in one sentence does the job. However much I like the idea of a punch line.
